Leading the way in Orthodontic technology is the discrete and bespoke treatment; Invisalign. Utilising 3D computer graphics to calibrate the exact dimensions of your mouth, we can create a virtually undetectable plastic mould that fits your teeth like a thin clear mouthguard. This means no more bulky brackets, painful archwires or snapping bands, replacing the need for braces altogether.
How does Invisalign work?
The Invisalign aligners are designed to encourage the teeth to grow perfectly straight, rectifying their angle and reaching the desired positioning for 12 to 24 months, depending on your personal needs. The invisible braces are interchanged every two weeks to continually guide the patients’ teeth into an even and healthy grin. Coming in to see the orthodontist every fortnight would be far too time-consuming, so we supply patients with several sets of aligners at every appointment so that they can switch them out once they have done their job. Patients will notice the gradual moving of their teeth over time and will be ecstatic at the results.
Because the switching of the casings is left to the patient in between appointments, it means you only in to visit Baldivis Orthodontics every 6 – 8 weeks. Having the ability to take the invisible braces out whenever necessary can minimise the risk of bacteria build-up, plaque and the possibility of infections, but also means patients must be vigilant about their upkeep for the treatment to be successful. Co-operation and commitment to the scheduled rotation of moulds is just as important as the ongoing checkups themselves.
